Honeywell has received certification from Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (U.L.) to integrate fire annunciation capabilities into its newest security system platform, the Honeywell Vindicator V5 Network Security Appliance (NSA). The new capabilities will allow Vindicator to display fire alarm information to local and remote security personnel, enabling them to respond faster to fire emergencies.
â€œTight integration is an extremely effective strategy for high-security facilities of all types,â€ said Brian Holmes, director of sales for Honeywellâ€™s Vindicator Security Solutions. â€œWe had been receiving requests for this integration, so it only made sense to bring fire detection and alarms into the equation to give security personnel a complete picture of whatâ€™s happening in their facilities.â€
With integrated fire annunciation, the system allows an operator to receive event information from a buildingâ€™s fire system â€” as well as perimeter intrusion, video detection and access control systems â€” at a single console.
The Vindicator network allows security system information to be transmitted either on an existing or separate facility network over any media â€“ wire, RF, modem, fiber, etc. â€“ both encrypted and redundantly. This critical level of security is often required by government and military installations, chemical and industrial facilities, and many correctional institutions.
